you. jon: we still have debt deadlock on capitol hill with the default deadline just eight days away now. congressional leaders are still struggling to hammer out some kind of a deal, one that would raise the limit on our nation's credit card while cutting trillions of dollars in spending. house speaker john boehner may unveil his own bill today. harry reid said it would be a nonstarter. wendell goler is live on the north lawn with more. >> reporter: speaker boehner's plan would take the spending cuts agreed to before talks with vice joe biden broke down and raise the debt ceiling a little less than that. it would satisfy the speakers bottom line which is cutting spending more than the debt ceiling is raids but we'd have to go through this all over again by the end of the year. the speaker said yesterday it would solve the immediate crisis. >> there is going to be a two-stage process. it's not physically possible to do all of this in one step. having said that, chris, i know the president is worried about his next election, but my god shouldn't we be worried about the country? >> rep

are saying it can be done. failure to do it would lead to economic meltdown. >> jon, thank you very much. joining me to discuss the road ahead is the white house chief of staff bill daley. thank you very much for joining us. you've heard what jon said. you've seen what speaker boehner has done last night. what's your reaction to the deal being pulled right now? >> it's very unfortunate the speaker made the comments he has. the president is committtt to solving this deficit possible for the future of america. he's looking forward to the meeting to play out his case. he's saying, it is time now to make the tough decisions. in this town, generally they kick the can. nobody wants to do the tough things. he's committed to do that. he's not giving up on trying to bring economic sanity to the city and that's his goal. >> is he still committed to the mega-deal, so to speak? because this is what is floated in the last several days that speaker boehner said no longer possible. will the president continue to push for that? >> the president believes it is time to solve this problem. time to give con
are really embracing it as a way to draw others out. for instance, jon huntsman who is struggling in the polls now is really trying to use this as a referendum on mitt romney's leadership. not necessarily coming out saying he backed boehner's planning saying it's in the right direction, that he agrees that there should be no tax revenue and no tax hikes. so he's really trying to land some hits on romney in this instance. and, of course, all of them are using this to really make this argument that barack obama hasn't led, that he has no plan of his own, and that he is really a big spending liberal who has really presided over this massive increase in spending and deficit spending. >> right. so with the president's overall approval rating hitting a new low, it's now just 40%, do you think this debate helps or hurts the president in 2012? if everything gets done and over with here and we have an end of the summer sort of the heat and rhetoric all calms down, will this be a factor this time next year? >> i think it will definitely come up again. on the one hand, you're going to have r
a prayer for today's meeting then you have senator jon kyl, a republican, saying that the white house essentially walked away from $500 billion in cuts that the do sides had already agreed to so no one right now can point to any progress that these talks are achieving. >> pelley: senator mcconnell proposed a stopgap plan today in case they miss the deadline. what was that about? >> well, it's a pretty complicated plan, scott, and it essentially boils down to allowing the president to raise the debt limit in fits and starts over the next year and a half and essentially puts off any talk of spending cuts to a later date. the plan went over with a thud among house republicans who see this as giving in, but mcconnell says that he doesn't want to be a party to default and he certainly doesn't want republicans to be blamed if there is a default, scott. >> pelley: thanks, nancy. this deal to reduce the deficit could be huge. somewhere between $1 and $4 trillion. they're talking about taxes, social security, medicare, defense and most everyone agrees thisv it has to be done by next week to gi
extension in six months or so, after congress can identify more cuts. on face the nation, ears senator jon kyl said that would satisfy the republican aim of offsetting any increase in the debt ceiling with equal or greater cuts in spending. >> if we can reduce spending by a trillion dollars, then we extend the debt ceiling a trillion dollars worth and that would take it at least through the end of this year. >> but the president warned on friday he would veto that approach. president obama called for an increase in the debt ceiling. >> we have to extend this debt ceiling through the next election, into 2013. >> treasury secretary time geithner argued today that anything less would inject too muchen certainty into a weak dme. >> we can't adopt a approach that leaves the threat of deal hanging over the country. that would be deeply irresponsible to do. >> both sides blame the other for dragging the economy to the brink over of all things raising the debt ceiling, a typically uneventful affair congress has successful carried out more than 70 times. >> i would just say to to speaker boehner th

, that is where the numbers fall right off of a cliff. tim pawlenty, and ron paul, and jon huntsman all coming in under $5 million. pawlenty in fact is seeing the fund-raising numbers closer to herman cain's than mitt comeny's, but newt gingrich is going in the wrong direction, because he is reported to be $1 million in debt. and as for barack obama, they are saying that his is certain to meet the goals when the forms are filed next week. obama officials say they have nearly 500,000 individual donors give this quarter which is nearly five times the number that the bush/cheney re-election bid began with in 2003. now, into the money chase with "huffington post" social impact reporter, and analyst alex wagner. alex, the republicanings knew they would be outspent by president obama, and are they prepared to be this outspent by obama? >> no, this is not good news. that internal memo, romney had set a $50 million goal, and the fact that she is not meeting the 2007 numbers is ugly, and you compare it with the fact that there are predictions that the obama campaign will make $1 billion in fund-raising
the talks by vice president biden. the majority leader represented house republicans, jon kyl for senate republicans, and that vice president. they have been talking about all lot of cuts, both to discretionary and non- discretionary spending, but there the problem is that it does not seem to add at to what they would need to meet the president's requirements to get the country through the next election. that would be somewhere in the area of $2.4 trillion increase in the debt ceiling. john boehner has made it clear that for any increase in the debt ceiling, they will not need more than a one-one increased ratio. quite frankly the democrats have not agreed to that level of cuts. it looks like they will go back today, scour potential areas of saying that they have talked about, and see how much they can agree to and go from there. agree to and go from there. host: in your article from yesterday's with the headline " boehner tells conference big deal no longer operative," you said that there were criticisms for the grand bargain. he pays -- he faced opposition from eric cantor. they presen
in for jon scott. patti ann: i'm patti ann brown in for jenna lee, we are in the fox news room, "happening now", in the debt showdown, both sides digging in their heels before the debt defaults week away and the entire state of the u.s. economy hanging in the balance. now the president vows to keep calling meetings on cutting the the decifit and raising the limit on america's credit card until there is some sort of agreement. gregg: but the gop is standing firm against tax increases, while the president and democrats insist it has to be part of any equation that cuts benefit programs, for example, medicare, and house speaker john boehner, well now, he is squarely blaming the president, saying the debt limit is his problem, adding that the president talks a good game, but when it comes time to make these tough decisions, he can't quite pull the trigger. patti ann: and wendell goler right now is live at the white house with the very latest on the the debt debate. hi wendell. >> >> reporter: hi patti ann. it's going to be almost as hot in the cabinet room as it is out here, when the president
